(Photo: Kahawa 1893) Margaret Nyamumbo has made history as the first Black entrepreneur to have her coffee brand, Kahawa 1893, sold in Trader Joe's grocery stores across the country. As a third-generation coffee farmer from Kenya, she knew firsthand the injustices women coffee workers face in the industry.That's why Margaret, who earned her Master's degree at Harvard Business School, decided to quit her job at Wall Street and founded the Kahawa 1893 to support women coffee workers and help fight injustices in the coffee industry.
